Currently: Junior Project Manager, Contract Control Services
'It has been a real help learning about new products in the building game. I can come back to work and tell everyone what's relevant in the market.'
When Stephen was researching property and real estate courses, he soon realised that Deakin's course would provide him with the best opportunity.
'The course structure suited me and I could do the degree in three years instead of the four that some universities require to complete the same thing.'
Describing the course as
'very interesting', Stephen says he particularly enjoyed the practical components.
'We did lots of hands-on stuff, a lot of field trips and evaluations.'
During his first year, Stephen began working two to three days a week with Contract Control Services, and he is now employed by the company full time. A decision to major in sustainability has already proved relevant to his workplace.
